Lake District Foundation

Inspiring people to care for the Lake District

We are long standing supporters of the Lake District Foundation, which inspires people to care for the Lake District, funding conservation, environmental and cultural heritage projects to preserve this beautiful area for visitors. 

“The Lake District Foundation was established as a charity in August 2017. Prior to this, under the name Nurture Lakeland, the organisation had been working for 23 years to raise funds from visitors and the tourism industry.”

Why LDF?

As part of the tourism industry in the Lake District we want to do our bit to support the sector and maintain the beautiful surrounding areas. We love the Lake District as much as all our guests do, and we want it to be preserved for generations to come. By supporting LDF, you support us.

How do we support?

  • All guests are encouraged to make a £1 donation when booking their stay at the hostel.
  • We participate in LDF meetings to try and build a stronger, bigger, green community in the Lakes, and begin a conversation about our vision for a “Carbon-Free Langdale”.
  • We have several donation boxes around the hostel itself; donations are particularly encouraged in return for free tea and coffee that guests can enjoy.

What can you do?

If you would like to support LDF, and thereby support tourism in the Lakes, please consider donating via this link.

How we have benefitted

In 2022 we were successful in our application for grant funding under the Low Carbon Lake District Grant Scheme with 60% support “for the replacement of window coverings with modern fabrics with greater insulation qualities to include thermal linings to increase heat retention.
